  1. 5.0 Eco Journeys Tour (24 reviews)

    Eco Tours
    Eco Journeys Tour image
    I went there with 3 of my girlfriends and on our last day there we spent the morning kayaking with Luis, Erickson, & Dave (the guides from the company - they accompanied us in their own kayaks and were always there to help us). They made the experience for us as they were a lot of fun and very informative. We were picked up at our hotel and transported to Salinas where we set off on the kayaks. It was very peaceful and felt like we were in our own private bay! We had fun racing our kayaks and even though we had never kayaked before we picked it up quick as we received great instructions. Had an awesome time. We also got a snack of fresh mangoes, bananas and candy during the trip. After we were done kayaking we went to a great seafood restaurant where we sampled the local fare - fish sticks, seafood empenadas, soup, salad, etc This is a GREAT VALUE and a MUSTDO activity when in Puerto Rico!! Thanks again guys! See more..

    A complete and spectacular experience! From the moment of making the reservation super easy and safe, until arrival at the place. Both Keyshla and Victor were super friendly and treated us with great respect and cordiality. The safety instructions and the guide were 10/10. Obviously they took us through the most beautiful places, a calm sea and a spectacular sunset were in our favor! THANK YOU Caribe Jet Ski for a life time experience! See more..
  3. 5.0 Casa de los Caracoles (1 review)
    - Very unique!
    Points of Interest & Landmarks
    Casa de los Caracoles image
    Ever wondered how a house covered in seashells by the sea shore would look? Well look no further than Barrio Playa in Salinas. The home belongs to Don Ovidio "Jimmy" Berrios Santiago, who, after his retirement, decided to make his dream of lining his house with "caracoles" come true. Not only is his living quarter fully decorated with shells, but so is his car! In total, the amount of seashells used in this project sums up to over a million. See more..

Lunch was cold cuts for sandwiches, pasta salad , bean salad, fruit and chips. There was plenty for everyone On the beach they set up chairs umbrellas floats out on water and kayak. We were unable to explore the island due to recent earthquakes but still had a great time. The ride back was bumpy as we were told due to high winds and I got motion sick ( I think I was the only one though) and the staff were great providing me with bags and napkins and continued to Check in on me.
